Am I allowed to raise here?
 
At our monthly house game of poker, the following situation has occurred a couple of times and one of the relatively new players is saying that I can't raise

Without remembering being in a similar hand online or at a casino I couldn't comment if it was true or not.

Seat 1 me - 1000 chips
Seat 2 bob - 250 chips
Seat 3 Fred - 1000 chips


Blinds 50/100

Me - raise to 200
Bob - goes all in with 250
Fred - calls 250
Me - ?


Now what the one guy is saying is that I am not allowed to raise here. Let's say I wanted to raise to try and get Fred to fold pre-flop. I wouldn't be allowed. I have to call or fold

Is this correct?

Having only played home games for the past two years, I really can't remember the rules here to contest.

In the end we decided that house rules were that I was allowed to raise.

Thanks

In most casino/online - you cant raise

"All raises must be equal to or greater than the size of the previous bet or raise on that betting round, except for an all-in wager. A player who has already checked or called may not subsequently raise an all-in bet that is less than the full size of the last bet or raise."

There may be some places or tournies where a raise of 1/2 the size of the last bet or raise or more reopens the action. If that were the rule in your situation you would be allowed to raise (you raised 100) and he raised half that.

But in general the full size or more is the standard rule. If he had 300 or more you would have an option to raise again.
